The mothers on Manhattan’s chic Upper East Side are highly educated, extremely wealthy, and very competitive. They throw themselves and all of their energy and resources into full-time child rearing, turning their kids into the unwitting pawns in a game where success is measured in precocious achievements, jam-packed schedules, and elite private-school pedigrees. Hannah Allen has recently moved to the neighborhood with her New York City–bred investment banker husband and their two-year-old daughter, Violet. She’s immediately inundated by an outpouring of advice from her not-so-well-intentioned new friends and her overbearing, socially conscious mother-in-law, who coach her on matters ranging from where to buy the must-have $300 baby dress to how to get into the only pre-pre-preschool that counts. Despite her better instincts and common sense, Hannah soon finds herself caught up in the competitive whirl of high-stakes mothering. Download and start listening now!

    " I so enjoyed this humorous, at times hilarious, book. Momzillas are everywhere, people. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chrissy | 2/11/2014

    " A fluffy read...you want to grab the character and shake her to reality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 2/5/2014

    " This one was just mindless fun. I was suprised that even though the characters were over the top, I have met some similar "Momzillas" in the past! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/4/2014

    " Cute and entertaining book. Would recommend! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 1/28/2014

    " This is a fun, light read- when you start to have kids it will be a must-read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellenjsmellen | 1/25/2014

    " Funny and whitty. I enjoyed this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Msor | 1/19/2014

    " basically the same as The Nanny Diaries, except from the perspective of a recently-moved-to-manhattan-ite-mom vs. a UES nanny. Although this book was entertaining, all in all, i liked the nanny diaries better, as it explored the (in my opinion) more worthwhile and meaningful perspective of the child, rather than the perspective of an outsider mom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin Esser | 1/18/2014

    " Fast, easy read. Fun story "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Merryn | 1/17/2014

    " blah blah...this topic has been done to death and there was nothing in here that was edgy to make it stand out from all the other books in this genre. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie Christian | 1/16/2014

    " A bit obvious and over the top, but I suspect it may be too true to life, and that's what scares me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aimee | 1/5/2014

    " I love a story where the mean girls get what's coming to them. Light, easy read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tiffany | 12/27/2013

    " Abandoned this book after a few chapters. The narrator's voice sounds like she's trying waaaaay too hard to be cool. Totally annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annemarie Tull | 12/15/2013

    " You'll recognize people that you know from preschool and private school! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 12/6/2013

    " Funny!! I got such a kick out of this book... I actually laughed out loud a couple times while my hubby was watching TV and it really irritated him, but it was good anyway!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terri Rogers | 9/22/2013

    " This book is exactly what you would expect it to be. A very quick read (good to take to the beach). It has it's cute moments but I spent a lot of time wanting to "flog" this girl up side the head with a hard object. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pattie | 9/17/2013

    " Simple story. Simple characters. Simple problems fixed in simple ways. Cute. Not terribly intriguing or drama-filled, but an easy, quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee | 5/5/2013

    " Only in to the third chapter but am already nodding my head in recognition. Very amusing although I could do without the o' things popping up everywhere. I think I will enjoy this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly Franklin | 4/12/2013

    " This book was cute, but nothing terribly original. I thought it would be better than it was. I was actually kind of bored with it. It's a quick read though, good pool book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 3/23/2013

    " The only part I liked about this book were the glossary of posh mommy words! And I'm defiantely going to have a sip and see for my baby on the way! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elisabeth | 2/17/2013

    " Ugh, I hate to give up on a book but this was too steriotypical for me to really get into. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammy Luke | 2/10/2013

    " This was okay but the whole uber competitive mom thing drives me nuts!! Get a life already! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bedford Library | 10/4/2012

    " A very chic, very hip take on modern motherhood in Manhattan. Reading this book is like talking to your best girlfriend. If you have the pleasure of listening to the audiobook (like I did) the narrator really brings the book to life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley | 7/20/2012

    " This was a great fun read. I really enjoyed reading about a mom's life through different eyes and am so glad to not have to deal with all the BS the mom in this book did! Really great book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Car | 5/20/2012

    " I read this before and didn't realize it when I saw it on the list of books I'd like to read. It's a crazy story, and it makes me grateful that I don't live among people like that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Autumn | 12/26/2011

    " A woman moves with her husband and little one to NY, but has difficulty fitting in with her new "friends" and winning over her mother-in-law. Cute book. Had some funny moments. Exactly what I was looking for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 11/24/2011

    " The funniest thing about this book is the glossary. Found at the beginning of the book. It made me laugh out loud. If the rest of the book was as funny as this I could have given it the last two stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison Tymko Tymko | 10/7/2011

    " Just picked this book up from the library yesterday and finished it today. Very likeable characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey Brown | 10/2/2011

    " Nothing special but just a cute and entertaining read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anjiebringhurst | 8/28/2011

    " Gossip Girl meets Sex in the City and they had babies. The book was entertaining but had a lot of unnecessary language. I was bothered that the main character was written to be so much less dramatic than the Park Avenue Momzillas but she abbreviated her words just like them (i.e. Whatever=Whatevs). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 4/16/2011

    " This book is fun, ideal for some light reading on the beach... the author gives a comic yet real description of the New York Elite families and their quest to put their daughters/sons in kindergarden schools... you would think that they are applying for colleges instead lol! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kellen | 4/7/2011

    " It looks a little useless at a first sigh. But It was fun. I identify myself in some moments of the book. Great reading! Relaxing, thrilling and also brought some tears in my face. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 3/18/2011

    " Quick, light, funny read. Definitely not deep, but if you're in the mood for easy, it's a good one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niki | 3/8/2011

    " Hillarious!!! There is a little momzilla in all of us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 1/29/2011

    " Good, easy read... especially for new mums. A good 'in between' book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adele | 12/23/2010

    " While it's set in Manhattan, the moms in this book bear more than a passing resemblance to the insane Fairfield County moms that I know so well. The stort is a little silly, but fun. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Aleeza | 11/25/2010

    " I didn't like this book so much because it is not my type and also it has some bad words that it talks about. I think this is for adults. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 11/11/2010

    " Could have been a little more lighthearted. Without the ponderous descriptions the book would shrink considerably. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 11/3/2010

    " A friend sent this to me because she thought I'd want to do some light reading while feeding Blake in the middle of the night. It's basically chick-lit for moms. Occasionally very witty. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannon | 9/28/2010

    " I thought this book would be a witty take on wealthy Manhattan moms and all their uber-materialistic ways, but it ended up taking itself way too seriously, and wasn't funny at all. Do yourself a favor and don't read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael | 9/6/2010

    " Funny, quick, light read that will give most mommies out there a lot of good laughs. "
